Mother’s Day is just around the corner and that can only mean one thing… it’s time to spoil that wonderful woman rotten - it’s time to return the favour. And that’s why we’ve created a Mother’s Day 2023 Gift Guide just for you, packed with only the very best selection of fabulous gifts!
I understand that some of you will be looking for something conventional - we’re talking mugs, chocolates and candles. Whether you’re aiming high this year or trying to keep to a strict budget (I mean, there is a cost of living crisis, people!), we have just what you’re looking for.
Starting off our list with probably the most obvious, and must have, gift idea - chocolates. You can’t go wrong with chocolates. Every mum is a sucker for a sweet treat! We have a HUGE selection of cocoa-y goodness - vegan or ‘regular’, all within a broad price range, meaning no matter your budget, there’s something perfect just for her! Whether that’s Tony’s Chocolate in fabulous flavours from Pretzel Toffee to Caramel Biscuit or, my personal favourite, Gnaw which includes all sorts of weird and wonderful flavours from Gin and Tonic to Raspberry and Chilli (yum!).
Of course, we also have some special options also, something different to your typical chocolate bar - maybe even a little bougier too. If your mumma’s a truffle typa girl, we have Love Cocoa truffles available in either Milk Chocolate or Pink Gin. Then there’s our White Strawberry Champagne Bar that just looks *chef’s kiss*. Now, I might have to buy two of these this Mother’s Day… one for my mum AND one for me. God, doesn’t it just look delicious?
Candles. Everyone loves candles! We’re going to dive straight into the weirder options we have available. Why not? Check out these Pyropet Candles. They may look sweet from the outside but once they begin to melt, their aluminium skeleton starts to show. Quite morbid, I’ll admit, but these candles are perfect for the spooky mumma’s out there, just like mine! We have Pyropet candles available in all different… breeds? Is that really the word we’re using here? Whatever. We’ll roll with it. As I was saying, we have several different breeds (creatures, perhaps?) available including dogs, unicorns and dragons!
I get that the Pyropet candle isn’t for everybody but how about a novelty candle? One with a silly scent or message that you wouldn’t find in just your ordinary store? We have a variety of novelty candles on our store. To name a few, we have our 'The Melania Candle', smells expensive but won’t hold your hand and 'Bye Felicia Candle', a candle to ward off evil spirits. Bad vibes be gone! Each of these candles have unique, gorgeous scents and around 45 hours on burn time depending on the candle.
Obviously, we also have a range of ‘nicer’ candles to gift your mum and by ‘nicer’ I mean not one that melts to reveal a literal skeleton (as cool as it is, I stand by that). If you’re looking for something more traditional we have both Aery Candles, available in either Fig Leaf or Happy Space (which has a more floral scent) or WXY candles, which are a tad more affordable in amazing scents such as Rosemary and Juniper, Lucent Sunshine and Cedar and, finally, Eos Orris Root, all of which truly smell divine.
Another, perhaps more obvious, idea is to buy her a mug. I mean, personally, I can never get enough mugs!
We have all sorts of mugs available for every kind of Mumma. If she’s an animal lover, opt for either our Dog Lover Mug, Crazy Cat Lady Mug or our Gemma Correll Capugccino Mug. If she’s a coffee kinda girl, buy her the Fully Caffeinated Mug. Of course, we also have mugs more on theme with Mother’s Day too, such as our Mum You Kick Ass Mug and a Best Step Mum Mug for those who want to show some appreciation towards the incredible women who stepped in as a motherly figure at any point in your life.
To finish off our list of more traditional gifts, I have one word for you. Puzzles. What mum doesn’t love a good puzzle? We have a few varieties of puzzles available on our store. Give them the gift that is the peace and quiet only a puzzle will allow this Mother’s Day!
From plant themed puzzles for the more Green Fingered Mothers to wildlife themed ones for those who love animals, we have some great options available! Check out just a few of the ones we have to offer…
Moving onto the less traditional stuff, we have Artful Boxes. A perfect gift for any artistic Mumma! The Mother’s who live and breathe art. Art can be… an expensive hobby, to say the least and, boy, does it run out fast! But for us gift givers, that’s exactly what we want! What better than the ability to give your Mum a gift they need and, better yet, love? And, if you’re a sibling, you’ll definitely be the favourite child after this one.
Artful boxes. Artful boxes are incredibly popular amongst our more artsy followers, people love them! For those who might not know what an artful box is, it’s essentially a box filled with all the essentials for your chosen medium. We have several options of these boxes available, one perfect for every kind of artist. From pencils to gouache, pastels to watercolour and so much more!
This next section is fit for the mothers who are stationery mad. So, if Mum loves pens, pencils, notebooks and more, read on!
Papergang boxes. We are yet to meet a mum who doesn’t love Papergang. For those who might not know, Papergang is Ohh Deer's way of expressing a deep rooted obsession with papery goodness! These boxes are filled with stationery which include products from pens, to notebooks to pencil cases.
You don’t need a subscription in order to obtain our wonderful boxes, in fact, you can buy them directly on our website! And, the plus side of doing it this way is that you can pick a box that fits her interests best - our Celestial Power Box for our spooky mummies, our Papergang x Eden Project Box for the plant loving mums; the list goes on! Check out our entire selection HERE.
And, if you like the idea of stationery boxes, you can sign up for a MYSTERY Papergang subscription! Each month you will receive a box filled with brilliant stationery. The product selection will vary but the best part is you will never get a repeat box; each month will be designed by a different artist and a brand new theme!
On the theme of stationery, if you don’t fancy getting Mum an entire box jam-packed with papery goodness, you could also purchase items individually instead!
We have some fabulous items created by talented artists such as Gemma Correll and Cath Kidston, including our large selection of notebooks! These notebooks are available in a variety of sizes, colours and designs. Personalised or… not personalised? There’s a notebook for quite literally every kind of person. Take your pick!
We also have some gorgeous (undated) Daily Planners available that can be used at any point in the year as well as other lovely bits such as sticky notes and pop-culture themed pencils, like our Drag Race Pencil Set.
Embroidery Hoops/Cross Stitch Kits
Is your Mumma the sort of person that loves embroidery? If yes, we have just the gift selection for you!
To finish off our Mother’s Day Gift Guide, we have the perfect gift for any mother who likes to get crafty! We have a massive range of embroidery kits with a variety of different designs from sweet homely messages to, well, straight up hilarious ones that are guaranteed to make her giggle, like our “Shit Happens” Cross Stitch Kit. Take a look at just a few of the ones we have to offer!
And with that, we’ve come to an end of our Mother’s Day 2023 Gift Guide. Spoil your lovely mothers this Mother’s Day, it falls on the 19th of March this year, don’t forget! Be sure to check out our other blogs for all sorts of great content from pop-culture articles to artsy ones.
